ford related to special needs plans under medicare advantage. across those 19 recommendations, there were a total of 302 yes votes from medpac commissions, five no votes and three abstentions. so there's a substantial consensus in the commission in favor of the recommendations in our report. if i could highlight just one thing in my opening statement it would be recommendation to repeal the sgr system, sustainable growth rate system, medicare physician payment program. as you well know, cbo recently we estimated the cost of repeal, and it is dramatically lower than it has been in recent years. from our perspective sgr repeal is now on sale, and the sale price may not last so we urge you to take advantage of this opportunity. we also urge you to include in the repeal legislation to other things. one is provisions that we rebound space between cognitive and -- with particular emphasis on primary care. second provision designed to encourage movement towards new payment systems. as we see it, payment reform, that is, moving away from fee-for-service to new payment models like acco
to find a ford minivan reside full of israel yous who are antiamerican whatever if the differences have been with obama, for the most part, every stop along the visit is designed -- very well choreographed to touch deeper chords in israeli society, whether at it the vision to the shrine or the stop at the tomb, or talking to israeli kids about the future. these are things that obama will do very well at and i think this trip is already -- i think the surprise is it went be a success. there will be hiccups. why weren't they talk to the knesset, and the big piece, the public part, is going to be successful. to the extent i can. i think i see it as obama doing this outreach, more than just checking a box he sees the way to manage the israeli government runs through the israeli public. doesn't mean it was fully focused on everything. he was on the limited apology to turk yes. i think iran is a gut issue for benjamin netanyahu. and certainly having publicman more -- opinion more on his side can only help the president as he relates to the new government. so i would say that's the first part.
found them and she got the votes. that's microtargeting. harold ford the former head of the democratic leadership council has said look of course obama had a more powerful message. but he also was able to find voters in states like ohio and florida and colorado that had never been found before and we have to emulate that to prevent any chance of success. lastly, there is one thing we do have to worry about. we are seeing a deterrent to change the rules of the game. it's not just michael targeting. it's an attempt to obliterate the system that we have in this country and to introduce a greater element of fraud. right now all of the liberal groups -- all of the liberal groups are trying to push for something called mandatory voter registration. this would be a disaster. of course we have an antiquated registration system to the lobby of 2 million dead people. i don't support representation without restoration. [laughter] we have 2.75 million people in one state. we have one out of a voter registrations are inaccurate. the way to fix that isn't to throw away the whole registration system
, it is israel you would be hard-pressed to find a ford minivan's worth of israelis that who are anti-american. they want to like an american president. whatever their differences have been with obama and they have been recorded in polls, for the most part every stop along the visit is designed, is very well choreographed to touch deeper chords in israeli society whether a visit to the shrine of book, talking about historical attachment of land or the stop at hertzel's tomb or talking to israeli kids about the future of the 21st century these are things obama will do very well at and i think this trip is already, i would be surprised if it isn't a success. there will be hiccups. why didn't he talk to the knesset. why weren't the students from ariel invited along with other college students? there will be some hiccups but i think the public part will be successful to the extent i can. the way i see it obama doing the outreach, some say oh, he wants just to check a box. i think he sees the way towards magging the relationship with the israeli government runs through the israeli public.
